“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” – Pablo Picasso
It doesn’t matter where we look, what we hear or do, most of what we perceive is through and through influenced by our experiences and learned behaviours. To see with a beginner’s mind, to look at things as if we’d see them for the very first time, with wonder, joy and full of questions – takes effort.
Effort worth making? I’d say so.
